Apart from a few, rarely used, lamps that have yet to be changed, I have
long converted everything to LED.

Me too, except for my bedside lamp which is halogen for colour
rendition. Any comments on reading under a 230V LED spotlight? Would
you go for cool, daylight or warm?

This may or may not help.

Halogen is regarded as 3000k, or warm white.

If you want to stay awake, the the cooler temperatures, to go to sleep
then perhaps aim for the warmer temps.
